Frozen Four set to feature multiple Chicago Blackhawks' prospects

The NCAA Tournament for men's hockey opened play this past weekend, and while only a few Blackhawks' prospects and their teams remain, there were still plenty of contributions from those that made the tournament.

Frank Nazar III and the Michigan Wolverines were able to bounce back from a loss in the Big Ten Tournament Title game by coming out on top in a 4-3 final against the North Dakota Fighting Hawks in the quarterfinal round.

In the win on Friday night, Nazar scored the equalizer to make it a 1-1 game in the second period and went 9-for-18 on faceoffs. After having gone seven games in a row without a goal, Nazar managed to score three goals in a two-game span with two against Michigan State in the Big Ten title game, then the other against North Dakota in the NCAA Tournament.

Closing out the opening weekend on Sunday night, Nazar and Michigan got another crack at revenge as they took on Michigan State. The Wolverines would get their revenge, as they beat the Spartans by a final of 5-2.

Putting the finishing touches to an already successful weekend was Nazar, who added an assist against Michigan State and it was one of the best assists you will see all year. In addition to that, Nazar went 8-for-11 in the face-off circle.

The Frozen Four will feature a battle of Blackhawks' prospects, as Denver and Boston will play eachother on April 11 at 4 p.m. CT. Michigan will face Boston College on the same day at 7:30 p.m. CT for the other Frozen Four matchup. At the very least, we will get one Hawks' prospect that will play for a national championship.
